Is this some sort of flatworm or something on my kenya tree? It got droopy all the sudden 2 days ago (nofthing has changed and has had plenty of flow)
It has dropped frags a few times as you can see.
I don't understand what has happend.
And there is the brown dots on some of its branches. Am I just over perionoid?

These blue pics are hard to look at or really see any detail. Retracted polyps can look like dark spots because the flesh is bunched up rather than stretched out. Don't forget they are animals that react and move as they please. Once upon a time I had 2 Kenya trees about 4 inches away from each other, I inadvertently moved a powerhead and blasted them with flow. it was really cool to see them lean over and interlock polyps, forming a arch, to support and stabilize each other in the extreme current. A pivotal moment where I realized corals are more animal than plant/rock

I don't think this is it just retracting...
It looks like it's melting or falling apart.

Alk:8.3
Phos0.23
Nitrate 20
Ph 8.1
Sal 1.026

All levels normal. Slightly elevated nitrate due to a goby that died a month ago but every thing else including phos is normal.
